This paper presents a minimally invasive needle-shaped probe capable of monitoring the electrical impedance of living tissues. This microprobe consists of a 160 microm thick SU-8 substrate containing four planar platinum (Pt) microelectrodes. We design the probe to minimize damage to the surrounding tissue and to be stiff enough to be inserted in living(More)
To measure the amounts of dieldrin and carbofuran lost to the environment, we incorporated them into soils in small (0.6-1.1 ha) watersheds in separate years. The disappearance of each was monitored by periodically measuring residues in the soil, runoff, maize plants, and overlying air (dieldrin only). Soil residues were nonuniformly distributed.

Concentrations in air of (Z)-9-tetradecen-1-ol formate (Z-9-tdf), a mating disruptant ofHeliothis moths, were measured intermittently over a 22-day period in a corn field. The chemical was emitted from laminated plastic (Hercon®) dispensers arranged in a square grid with 10-m spacing. Measurements were made at three heights near the center of the treated(More)
A zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) as member of the metal-organic framework family has been crystallized as a thin porous layer on an asymmetric ceramic support. Hydrogen can be selected from other gases by molecular sieving.
Inspired by the bioadhesive ability of the marine mussel, a simple, versatile, and powerful synthesis strategy was developed to prepare highly reproducible and permselective molecular sieve membranes by using polydopamine as a novel covalent linker. Attributing to the formation of strong covalent and noncovalent bonds, ZIF-8 nutrients are attracted and(More)
The field of metal-organic framework based mixed matrix membranes (M(4)s) is critically reviewed, with special emphasis on their application in CO2 capture during energy generation. After introducing the most relevant parameters affecting membrane performance, we define targets in terms of selectivity and productivity based on existing literature on process(More)
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are new microporous materials, which might revolutionize gas separation as molecular sieve membranes. [ 1–3 ] The framework structure of these organicinorganic coordination compounds is constructed of metal cations or clusters bridged by anionic organic linker molecules. Pore size and adsorption affi nities can be altered by(More)
